Paris Hilton finally reveals the true story behind this iconic photo

Paris Hilton finally reveals the true story behind this iconic photo

We may now be in 2019, but boy we do have one hell of a throwback for you, a throwback from 2006 to be exact. A whole 13 years after one particularly iconic photo was taken, we are now reliving the drama that occurred between Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

Over the past year, Hilton has gone out of her way to throw shade at Lohan multiple times. And this time, the reality TV star is putting her on blast for something that happened in the year 2006.

Remember that time Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan were snapped hanging out together in a car? The resulting paparazzi shots of the duo led to them being affectionately dubbed "The Holy Trinity".

In reality, it was all a bit frosty - on Hilton's part at least. And if her version of the story is to be taken at face value, she had every right to be, Apparently, Lohan was never supposed to be in the photo in the first place. And why is that? Well, because she was never actually supposed to be in Hilton's car.

It has been a mystery for years - but it seems that now the mystery has finally been solved. In a recent interview, Hilton finally spilled the beans on what exactly happened that fateful night.

Speaking with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM radio show, the 37-year-old revealed that Lohan had turned up to her and Spear's night out totally uninvited.

"Well, Britney and I went out for the night… [Lindsay] totally party crashed," the Simple Life star recalled. "We were all at the Beverly Hills Hotel at the bungalows and we were at an after-party and then Britney and I wanted to leave to go home. And then [Lindsay] started, like, chasing us, and then squeezed in the car – it was literally a two-seater. She just, like, squeezed in."

But luckily for the formerly troubled child star, Hilton sort of just went with it and welcomed her (albeit reluctantly) into the car.

"I didn’t want to humiliate her in front of all the paparazzi and be like, ‘Get out of my car', so I was like 'whatever'," she explained. "We went back to my house and then Britney and I just went to sleep. And then, I don't know, Lindsay probably went to another party. There was no Uber back then so she probably called a cab."

Hilton was also asked whether she was still friends with Lohan, and the hotel heiress confessed that their notorious friendship had not lasted.

"Back in the day we were friends," she explained. "[Lindsay] is just, like, one of those people I just don’t really trust. And I only like to be around positive energy and good people – good vibes only."

But it's actually not all that surprising that the pair are no longer friends. The drama surrounding their friendship was evident from the very beginning. Yes, the same year the photo was taken, Lohan started being linked to Hilton's ex-boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos, a Greek shipping heir.

Not long after the story broke, Hilton couldn't help but laugh as her friend Brandon David savaged the actress in front of the paparazzi, claiming "I think she's worth about $7 million, which means she's really poor. It's disgusting. She lives in a motel. Who would want to f**k her?"

The reality TV star's publicist later commented, saying: "It is unfair to characterise Brandon's statements as being reflective of Hilton's feelings about Lindsay. We're dealing with two different people."

Following this were years of drama and shade throwing as a love-hate relationship started brewing. Over a decade later and it seems neither party is willing to let the drama go but who knows what will be in store for the famous frenemies in the future? Perhaps another iconic car snap or two?
